Plastic Covered Furniture: Urban Legend?
Has anyone ever met anyone with actual plastic covered furniture? The idea of covering your furniture in plastic has been made fun of a lot in movies (Little Shop of Horrors, Fido, etc.) but I don't recall ever actually seeing it in real life. [This image I uploaded, though, is strangely reminiscent of a certain trailer in Hermosa...] I know that, when I was a little kid in San Francisco, lots of old people- including my grandparents- had plastic lamp shade covers. That was common. That's not what I mean, though. I mean, have you ever seen an actual couch, love seat, easy chair, or other living-room like furniture actually in a lived-in home, actually covered in a fitted plastic cover for the sake of style and/or cleanliness possibilities? Anyone? I anxiously await your comments.
